The Nurturing the Mother® Wise Woman Menopause Massage class is a delightful, fun and informative workshop to learn techniques and protocol for therapeutic massage in support of the powerful life changes a woman experiences in her peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopausal stages. During this time in a woman’s life she can take charge of her body again, after decades of giving to her family and career.
Women’s healthcare, especially for the aging female, is largely under-researched and unable to provide effective techniques for women to cope with their changing bodies. This course will support the massage therapist in educating the client, along with addressing her areas of concern that may have largely been overlooked by most healthcare practitioners. Marketing has shown that women age 45-65 are the highest population receiving massage therapy. It is time to give them the focused massage they deserve.

Loss of sleep
